I’ve been gathering old photographs of Wickenburg for wickenburg-az.com‘s new Before and After section. I’ve found quite a few and will soon be putting them online, along with images from the same places today.
I ran across the following photograph yesterday. I couldn’t figure out where it was, although I thought it might be Anita’s on Valentine Street. I’m not sure when the photo is from, but I’d estimate sometime in the 1960s. Perhaps someone has more information and can enlighten us. (Use the Comments link below.)
Frick’s Indian Store in Wickenburg of the past.
I posted the photo on this site (the post has since been deleted) and a site visitor named Darlene correctly identified the building within 30 minutes. (How’s that for quick action?) As she pointed out, it’s the building that currently houses B&S Discount Store and, until recently, the Wickenburg Farmer’s Market (which went out of business earlier this month, as reported by John in another article here).
Here’s what the building looked like this morning:
642 West Wickenburg Way, February 1, 2006
If anyone has other pictures of this location — preferably older ones — or information about past occupants, let us know. Use the Comments link below.
